Kabra Kasai (Hebrew: כברה קסאי‎; born August 3, 1982) is an Israeli singer, best known for her work alongside Idan Raichel in the Idan Raichel Project (Hebrew: הפרוייקט של עידן רייכל). She is also known for her participation in the first season of the Israeli version of American Idol, Kochav Nolad, where she reached the top 8.[1] Her most famous song is called Habaytah, Haloch Chazor, which means "Home, Back and Forth".

She was born in a Sudanese refugee camp, to Ethiopian Jewish parents on their way to Israel, in what was called Operation Moses. She arrived in Israel when she was one year old, in 1984. At age 18, as mandatory in Israel, she began her military service, where she met Idan Raichel. Together, they performed in many military camps and facilities. When they left the army, the Idan Raichel project was acclaimed as a success, and they performed all over Israel and even went on some offshore tours.
